Rafa Mir could be on his way out of Wolverhampton Wanderers in January after struggling for form while on loan, but he could be one of two strikers offloaded in one of the next two transfer windows.
Bright Enobakhare has an uncertain future at Molineux as he’s struggled for first-team football in the last 18 months and endured a woeful loan spell away this season.
The 21-year-old has spent the campaign at Wigan Athletic, but he’s not made an appearance for the Latics since August. Enobakhare has not made the matchday squad for four months, but he’s not been injured – the striker represented Nigeria at the u23 Africa Cup of Nations last month.
Should Wolverhampton Wanderers let Bright Enobakhare run his contract down?
Enobakhare rose through the youth ranks to the Wolves first-team and has gone on to make 49 appearances in all competitions, scoring and creating four goals. The 21-year-old’s last outing came in Wolves’ 3-0 defeat to Sunderland (May 6, 2018).
With Raul Jimenez and Patrick Cutrone for competition, Enobakhare has little chance of getting back into the first-team. If Wigan don’t have a place for the centre-forward, Wolves won’t either. His loan at the DW Stadium runs until May 31, 2020, but it could be cut short if he’s not going to play.
And with his contract expiring next summer, this could be Enobakhare’s last season at Wolves.
